British NCO 27th (Inniskilling) Regiment of Foot, 1815
As their officers fell nearby, Battalions offered to loan officers to which replied the surviving Major, "Our Sergeants like to command the companies and I am loathe to deny them this honour".
No less than three Battalions of the men from Eniskillen served in the Peninsular War. The 1st Battalion in Lambert's Brigade at Waterloo were in square by the Brussels road and spurned to give an inch even under the heavy fire of French guns at a range of only 300 yards. By the end of the battle, they literally lay dead in their square.
